Skip Lawrence and Henry Niese Discuss EWr's Artwork...
“(EWR) is a colorist, ranging from savage to suave and delicate. Her experiments in pushing two dimensions into three, with forms projecting off the canvas in both rugged and subtle ways intrigues and fools the eye, the color sometimes belying the 3D forms, making them seem 2D, an interesting idea.” [HN - April 2013]
In response to a specific work (Jazz Trills):
“…your (EWR) work is not just drop-dead, in-your-face Abstract Expressionism, but there is a rich, sensitive subtlety and color to it….”
William “Skip” Lawrence:
“Making art is an exploration, of techniques, traditions, personal taste, non-sense, and determination. Elaine Weiner-Reed (EWR), as student and friend, has traveled that road with hard work and smiles. Her present work is the most expressive and personal I have seen and the finish line is still ahead. It has been my pleasure to be a part of that journey.” [WL - April 2013]
